The solar panels say it all…

This Cragsmoor, Ulster County home strives to keep the interior a comfortable temperature no matter the season. The 1800 square foot space is divided into four separate heating zones complete with new windows and doors. Large windows, sliding glass doors, and skylights help to draw the abundant natural light and warmth to the inside. In addition to the living room fireplace, the attached studio with its own entrance comes with a wood stove. Keep the living room/kitchen/dining apart from the studio and use it as a work space.

Originally built in 1956, the house comes with a lot of new features: Propane clothes dryer stove added in 2015; septic system and electric hot water heater added in 2014; and water pump added in 2012. Roof is from 2007, and the solar panels were install in 2014. Also includes ceramic tile flooring, two basements, attic space, enclosed front porch, and breezeway.

Outside, the three-acre plot comes with a shed, one car garage, garden, flower beds, fenced-in area, landscaping, and 80-gallon composting bin. Sounds like you could make yourself one semi-self-sufficient little homestead along the Shawangunk Ridge.

The hamlet of Cragsmoor is a secluded mountain community with historic homes and distinctly creative vibe. Also on display in Cragsmoor: Seriously stunning mountain views. Also close to Minnewaska, Sam’s Point, Ashokan Reservoir, and the western Catskill Mountains.

Located just over 90 minutes from NYC.
